HGI 2016


Admin Message

Thank you to the community and to Riverwood Square for contributing to our thoughtful Remembrance Day service. It was a proud moment for our school. Community efforts made the event very special.

The HGI Volleyball season along with the Band and Choir rehearsals are both the current focus for many. The Divisional Grade 8 Honour Band just performed an excellent concert on the evening of November 17th. We were very proud of the HGI participants in that Band.

Please watch the sports calendar for the Volleyball game and tournament times. Our Grade 7 – 9 Band and Choral Concert will be held at HGI on November 30 beginning at 7:00 p.m. Everyone is invited to this special presentation of student skill and talent. Mrs. Yacheson and Mr. McLean facilitate and conduct very well.

Our Grade 9 students and teachers experienced an excellent trip to the Human Rights Museum and Planetarium and are now preparing for their visit to the Legislature. Our Grade 8’s will be enjoying MTYP (Manitoba Theatre for Young People) on November 21st.

Grade 6 participants are now holders of Babysitting certificates after their one day course on November 14. Thank you very much to Ms. McDevitt, to PAC, and especially to Mrs. Ruby for her time and efforts in assisting in finding a different location for this course as our school was not available.

A very special event was held on November 18 – “WeDay”. 50 students from HGI (Grades 5 – 8) attended with 4 teachers. There will be follow-up global citizenship meetings and activities for these students to spread the knowledge and excitement gained at the gathering.

Teachers will be preparing student assessment reports and therefore there will be no classes on December 9th. Reports will be online for families on December 16th. If you need any assistance accessing the online information with your code, please call the HGI office.

Our next early dismissal will be December 14th. Students will be dismissed at 2:00 p.m. Bus students, who do not have parents picking them up, will be supervised until the school buses arrive at 3:25 p.m. Students who do not ride the bus and who do not attend the Before and After school program are dismissed early this one day per month. During the last dismissal, many students stayed at the school to be with friends or to use the office phone to make plans with friends. Please prepare for this next early dismissal as we need to ensure we have adequate supervision for the bus students remaining.

There will be a school Spirit Week during December 19 – 22. More information will be shared with students in preparation for this week. December 22 will be the last school day before the winter break. Classes will resume January 9, 2017 and it will be school day 5.

Happy and safe holiday wishes to everyone!

Sincerely,  Mike Pizzi & Peggy Hobson

Aligned with the Pembina Trails School Division new brand, HGI revised our strategic plan around our four pillars:

Humanity – Growth – Innovation – Sustainability

Humanity: We promote belonging, community, global citizenship, and a healthy learning environment – the groundwork for personal growth and development.

Growth: We seek new experiences as means to cultivate curiosity and realize the true potential for learning.

Innovation: We take the risks and disruptive leaps necessary to align new and relevant goals for learning with our rapidly changing world.

Sustainability: We intentionally infuse sustainability initiatives to connect environmental stewardship, social action, and community partnerships to improve the way we live.
